• Community Blood Drive at Carbondale Civic Center

    The City of Carbondale and the American Red Cross have teamed up to host the Carbondale Community Blood Drive on Tuesday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  All blood, plasma, and platelet donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies. The Red Cross says this testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to the coronavirus. 

    All volunteers and donors will be required to wear face masks. Donation stations will be spaced apart for social distancing.  Appointments are strongly encouraged to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed.
